Honor Your Roots with Tree of Life Gifts from Israel
We're fresh into our Jewish New Year, and Jews around the world have started a new Torah-reading cycle this past Simchat Torah holiday just a couple weeks ago, starting with the first Torah portion, Parshat Bereishit in the Book of Genesis. One of the most poignant visuals in these verses is the Tree of Life found in the Garden of Eden, and today the Tree has become a powerful spiritual symbol and is often used as a motif in Jewish art.
Known as the Etz Haim in Hebrew, the Tree of Life grows in the Garden of Eden near the Tree of Knowledge. Adam and Eve eat from the Tree of Knowledge, gaining the knowledge of Good and Evil; God subsequently fears that they will also eat from the Tree of Life and gain immortality, and so Adam and Eve are expelled from the Garden, where the Tree remains and is guarded by angels and a fiery sword. The Tree of Life is also mentioned in the Book of Proverbs, where it is associated with wisdom and calmness. It appears in Kabbalah as well, as a mystical symbol made up of lines and circles that represents the ten attributes through which God manifests Creation. Whether you connect more to Kabbalah or to the original Biblical texts, the Tree of Life symbol can be a poignant and meaningful way of anchoring your faith.
This is the perfect time of year to get in touch with Biblical themes, particularly this beautiful symbol of life and creation. Learn more below about our Israeli-made Tree of Life-themed gifts - from jewelry to Judaica to wall art and more!
